It is only in the last 100 years that many of the mysteries of the Maya people of Central America have been revealed. And perhaps the greatest mystery of all has been the ‘Long Count’ calendar that started its last great cycle on August 11, 3113 BCE and will come to an end 5125 years and 132 days later, on the winter solstice of 2012.

Overview

It is only in the last 100 years that many of the mysteries of the Maya people of Central America have been revealed. And perhaps the greatest mystery of all has been the ‘Long Count’ calendar that started its last great cycle on August 11, 3113 BCE and will come to an end 5125 years and 132 days later, on the winter solstice of 2012. While we now know that the Maya were brilliant mathematicians and astonishingly accurate astronomers, is it possible that they also possessed an almost supernatural foresight based on the understanding of natural cycles? Could such a civilization – which flourished over a thousand years ago – really have predicted the end of the Earth’s current civilization in the second decade of the third millennium CE?

This fascinating book provides a step-by-step guide to understanding and decoding the Mayan calendar and examines the scientific evidence that suggests solar flares, magnetic field changes and other potentially disastrous natural phenomena may well occur in 2012. David Douglas explores what such an event will really mean for us by delving into both the lost wisdom of the ancient Maya and sharing the perspective of spiritual leaders from the contemporary Mayan world who believe 2012 can provide a focus for the renewal of ourselves and the planet.

I found this book extremely informative. The Mayas were so advanced in Astromony that there are things about time that we do not know even with the technology our modern societes have developed. This books shows in written detail, drawings and pictures of the Mayas advanced Calendars - they used three - ; however, it is puzzling why they were still barbarians and savages, not any different from other cultures. This book is an eye opener because it generally believed that the Egyptians were so advanced, while we have here in the Americas the greatest culture that ever existed, perhaps and may dare to say more advanced than the Egytians. We are just starting to scracth the surface of how knowlegdeable the Mayas were. Is is too bad the Spaniards destroyed priceless and valuable ancient writing, otherwise we would know so much more. Great book, I highly recommend it.
